Margot Robbie lives in a world that is essentially a Barbie doll. The actress has spent the previous few years living large in the world of Barbie, producing and acting in the next Barbie movie.
Production on Barbie reportedly started in Los Angeles in March 2022. Fans observed Robbie and her well-known co-star, Ryan Gosling, filming near Venice Beach over the summer.
Since then, behind-the-scenes images and movie poster art have surfaced, and Robbie’s hot pink metamorphosis has fans in a frenzy.
But that’s not the only shocking information regarding the ultra-top-secret movie that has been revealed.
Everything you need to know about Barbie, from the movie’s premiere date to the woman who was initially cast as the protagonist.
Barbie is in capable hands as a director.
Greta Gerwig is directing Barbie, and her real-life Ken, Noah Baumbach, works with her as a co-writer. For her work on Lady Bird and Little Women, Gerwig has been nominated for an Oscar three times.
In addition, Baumback is a renowned director. For the movie Marriage Story from 2019, he garnered high accolades.
The cast is purportedly made up of Issa Rae and Will Ferrell, among many more A-list actors.
Hollywood A-listers will work together to produce the most eagerly awaited film of 2023. Gosling will play dreamboat Ken alongside Robbie.
The other cast members are America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, Emma Mackey, and Will Ferrell. According to Deadline, the actor will play a high-ranking official at a toy manufacturer.
The information that there will be several Barbie and Ken variations is even more enjoyable. Simu, Liu, and Ncuti Gatwa will play Barbie, Hari Nef, Issa Rae, and Hari Nef will play Ken.
But you might not know that Gerwig didn’t first think of putting Robbie in the role of the title character, the plastic doll. It was Amy Schumer.
The comedian was chosen to play Barbie in December 2016, but she dropped out of the production after only four months.
Schumer previously told The Hollywood Reporter that “they obviously didn’t want to do it the way I wanted to do it, the only way I was interested in doing it.” Robbie later received a role in January 2019.
The story of the film is kept a secret.
For the time being, everything that occurs in Barbieland remains there. No one has revealed anything about the film’s content, so it looks that Gerwig swore the cast and crew of Barbie to secrecy.
According to Ferrera, “People don’t know what to expect [with the movie], and I believe that’s the correct mood.” “It’s not that, whatever you believe it is. It’s not what you think.
From the movie stills, it appears that Robbie will be wearing Barbie’s infamous and garnished neon-coloured wardrobe. Pink, pink, and pinker.
The publication date is confirmed.
Barbie isn’t quite prepared to go out and party yet. We still have a while to wait for this awaited release as the movie isn’t scheduled to come out until July 2023.
It just buys us more time to think of possible candidates to sing Aqua’s well-known “Barbie Girl” anthem. Who can guess?
